Gender Responsive Budgeting – A Reference Guide

The Foundation published a Reference Guide on Gender Responsive Budgeting. It has two sections. The first relates to the context of public finance management. It provides basic information on a government budget and its components. It gives details of the budget process/cycle, drawing attention to different entry points for promoting gender-responsive public finance decisions.

The second section focuses on GRB, giving its definition, explaining its multiple benefits: inclusive democracy, effective governance and fair public finance management. The Guide also provides details of a 5-step approach to promote GRB. The information in this Guide is tailored to Pakistan’s context. It is general, so that it may be useful to parliamentarians, government officials and civil society.
